RRC Coil Springs, Shocks & Steering Damper

I'm cleaning my storage and realized that I still have this stuff. Totally forgot about it after several years.

Bought them for a RRC from the local LR dealership years ago to get rid of the air suspension. After doing the conversion I decided to go with something more aggressive for off-roading and replaced them with Old Man Emu springs and shocks. I estimate less than 500 miles.

$25 per spring; $20 each shock: $20 for the steering damper: Total $200 for the lot OBRO. Shipping will be a PITA and (I think) expensive, but I can do it on your dime or RURR.

This may fit other vehicles, but I am not sure about which ones.

Thanks!

Moderators: I just realized that I posted this in the wrong section. My apologies. Please change it to the parts for sale forum. I can't figure out how to change it myself. I should go to sleep now...

I read once that the early 110's were on RR springs. If that's true I can attest that the ride in my 83 110 is nice and smooth 32 years in.

Springs's color codes will help others too.
I have stock springs on & really like the ride.

I would like to know the part numbers and spring colors for these if you have them.

Thanks,

I took pictures of the springs. You can see the colors, but I don't know the meaning of them. The factory labels are still there but it is almost impossible to read the part numbers.

Thanks

Great link Ray! Thanks.

After looking at the coil springs info, I was able to identify 2 of them and I think I have the following:
1 NRC8044 (2 white-LHF)
1 NRC8045 (2 yellow-RHF)

I am not 100% sure about the other 2. I didn't find them on the coil springs information link, but according to information that I found online plus what I think I'm reading on the label, I believe the numbers are:
1 NTC8573 (LHR)
1 NTC8572 (RHR)

Hi

Long shot I know, but do you still have the shocks from this thread?

Would have taken the coils too if you still had them

I pass through San Juan couple of times a year
